【CONDITION: Very Good with the Original Box: Pre Owned】
RARE Kokeshi Creative Doll by Hideo Ishihara "Tsuioku"
The title "Tsuioku" given to this work means recollection in English.
Hideo Ishihara used to be a Naruko style kokeshi artist.
But since he didn't find Naruko's traditional style of creation interesting, he started his own style and became a great creative style artist.
If you see his kokeshi's very unique shape of the head, you can easily tell this kokeshi was made by him.
His works are still very popular and it's hard to get good condition one.
I am very happy to share this masterpiece with you here.
*There is a large crack on the back of the head. Please check the photos carefully before purchasing.
90*90*260 (mm)/ 374g
Most of the items I sell are vintage; they are second-hand, old, sometimes very old.
I try to describe and photograph my items honestly, however, if the pristine condition is very important to you, I feel you should be buying from a regular shop, where you can inspect the items personally.
PLEASE NOTE: All my items are sold "as is", with no warranty implied, and that the photos form part of the description, which should be read carefully.
